Coca-Cola Amatil put a cap on South Australia manufacturing operations

Industrial size textile factory in AfricaAusBNAusBN - Coca-Cola Amatil will close all of its manufacturing operations in South Australia, leaving around 180 people in the area jobless.

The Thebarton bottling facility will close in 2019, following Coca-Cola’s recent review of its Australia supply chain.

The soft drink giant has concluded that increasing production in Queensland and Western Australia are its primary concerns, at the expense of the Thebarton manufacturing plant.

In a statement, group managing director Alison Watkins said: “'Further development of our facility at Thebarton in South Australia was constrained by its CBD location, site layout, dated infrastructure and expensive logistics.

“This isn't a decision to be taken lightly, but we know it will be important for ensuring our position in the market into the future.”

Coca-Cola Amatil will maintain up to 250 jobs in sales and distribution across South Australia.

Kyam Maher, Manufacturing Minister for SA said the government was not consulted by Coca-Cola before the decision was made.
